Delvius


I've written a few FoE fics, mostly to please myself and others and to practice my craft as a writer. Now for 4th-wall breaking. "Greetings! I am Delvius, chronicler of Roam and friend to Goldwreath."

    At Last, a Not So Goodbye

    So it should have been apparent to anyone who's been following me the past 2~ years that my writing has slowed down. I published updates and blog posts months apart. To be honest it's been eating away at me; on the one hand I felt an obligation to finish what I started, and on the other hand real life stretched my attention so thin I could barely ever find time to sit down and write fanfiction. I

    Honest report on the state of my stories and this account

    Hello, everyone! It's been far too long, and I apologize. Real life has a way of taking up your time, and to be honest this account has gone neglected. It and the stories within it. I'll admit, for a few years now I've had a reduced urge to write -- mostly because I had other things to write about. I should have informed you all sooner, but even approaching this account made me tense. I was

    Branching Out

    Hey guys! So it's with a somewhat heavy heart that I'm writing this blogpost right now. A while ago I finished writing the most recent chapter for New Roam Innovatus, and have written about a 3rd of the next one. But in the days since I've been doing a lot of thinking. Looking back over the comments of my stories, trying to get an idea of where my career as a writer is heading, the likes.

    The Next Chapter, and Plans for the Future

    With the recent chapter published, and the next one already in the works, I honestly feel like my passion for writing has been reignited. Not that it was ever snuffed, for long periods of time I stood back from my stories in favor of more immediately important things, like school and relationships. Perhaps it's just the fact that I'm still on break, but I feel like I have regained the mental

Branching Out · 3:08pm Jan 11th, 2017

Hey guys! So it's with a somewhat heavy heart that I'm writing this blogpost right now. A while ago I finished writing the most recent chapter for New Roam Innovatus, and have written about a 3rd of the next one. But in the days since I've been doing a lot of thinking. Looking back over the comments of my stories, trying to get an idea of where my career as a writer is heading, the likes.

I've ultimately come to the conclusion that New Roam and New Roam Innovatus, being among my first serious efforts at writing stories, are amateurish and filled with many errors that early writers make. You know, problems with pacing, underdeveloped plot, etc. I could go into the details, but it basically boils down to those two projects were spontaneous. I didn't go into them with organization. I thought I had it figured out with New Roam Innovatus, but I didn't. The intermission between it and the original, as well as the time-consuming nature of college, took away from my thoughts. Despite that, I kept writing, and it turns out that there wasn't all that much substance in what I wrote.

I love what I wrote, it all taught me much. I love what Kkat wrote, and the show and game series she based her work on. They will all be major inspirations for me. Please note, also, that I'm not planning on discontinuing New Roam Innovatus. I will continue it, if only so it may reach an ending, and to discover more ideas. It is my mine; my crude, dangerous mine, and I will extract as much wealth of knowledge as I can from it.

What this basically means is that this account of mine will no longer going to be restricted to New Roam Innovatus. For a long time now I've felt like not writing anything that didn't pertain to it. It took up all my thoughts. That was unhealthy and ultimately resulted in me forgetting many other ideas. So who knows? You may all see other stories published here later on, things not related to FoE. I already have some ideas.

I hope this won't come off as disappointing to any of you. It's just that, if I'm going to be a writer, I need to branch out. For a long time my devotion to FoE combined with my amateurish skills resulted in two colossal projects that I found myself hard-pressed to continue writing. I need to be more prolific to thrive in the art I'm going to dedicate my life to.

I you feel the need to branch out, go for bringing out some other creative ideas, I say go for it. ^^

Branching out can be a very good thing! I think it is extremely important for writers to discover their passion. I wish you well. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the support :twilightsmile: I really do feel like continuing NRI, it's just that I was beginning to feel suffocated creatively. It was an unhealthy obsession that a writer couldn't afford.

4379599 If you focus too much on it you'll probably burn yourself out, branch out and you'll write better overall, that is what I am thinking.

I like the FOE stories but I like having other types too. I am glad that you are branching out to write other types of stories and I can't wait to read them. :pinkiehappy:

No matter what it is. Your talent is oozing and magnetic dude! I've been away for some time outside of fimfic but everytime I think of your stories...I feel this pull and emotional connection to just come back and read up your stories and see how your doing lol. I agree with Mint, branchig out can be refreshing. I feel you are onthe right path.
